This area can be part of the illustration or be left blank for logo to be added. This area will be covered by the logo, so no critical pieces of the illustration should be place in this area.

The strain name will be included in the art. This name can be created by the artist as long as the strain name can be easily read at a smaller size. The strain name can be added to the art by the Self Made marketing team if desired by the artist or if the name cannot be seen or easily read.
